Forgotten Gems

so i was having a little clear out today and i stumble across a couple of make-up items that i had long forgotten about, but had definitely once upon a time been a big part of my daily makeup routine.

first is this MAC eyeshadow which was release with a Barbie collection and it was actually my first ever MAC product. It's in a shade called whistle an I'm so glad i found it because i really used to love this product and i wore it all the time. it's a beautiful pearly baby pink colour that leaves a subtle satin finish. it can be worn as a eyeshadow, on the inner corners of the eyes to give a wide awake look and even as a highlighter on the brow bone. i still have quite a bit of it left and it still has the barbie imprint on it.

next is a product that I'm sure you've all heard about, it the Maybelline great lash mascara in Blackest Black. this was a cult favourite once upon a time and was actually the first mascara i ever owned. i haven't tried it in ages, but i do remember loving it and i did repurchase it a couple of times. this one is clearly past its sell by date so next time I'm in a drugstore i might just pick it up again as i do think that it's a forgotten gem of mine.

i love love love rediscovering old products, because when you do they feel new again ans you get the same feeling you did when you first bought them! :)

However... I'm going to start making a conscious effort to use product before i purchase more of the same kind. even though it's great to rediscover unused products i think it's even better to get your moneys worth out of them... do you agree?

have you rediscovered any old make up items lately?



  1. ooo whistle is so pretty. i just found my naked space lipglass from the neo sci fi collection i used to wear it all the time

  2. Thanks for following my blog - you're is fab too! xx

  3. Maybelline Great Lash.. I have a love/hate relationship with this mascara! It only sometimes makes my lashes amazing, and the rest of the time it clumps! But its way too pretty to throw away.. xx

  4. @Lorien BeautyLove - aha i'm a sucker for packaging and i love the great lash tube!
